A water feature is not just something you enjoy in the Summer months. I love the color changes in the fall seasons and i love to watch how the natural ecosystem of the water features change with them :)
In this picture I'm holding up my new work-shirt while i was Deployed to Afghanistan 2011-2012. I ordered them for the crew back home and didn't get to see them before i shipped out so they sent me one in a care package! I'm a passionate man. I love ponds, and i love my country. So when I'm not hauling rocks and slinging mud... Im doing my part to protect the free world from terrorism. I really missed sitting next to the pond with a cold drink!!! Live the Lifestyle, don't take anything for granted. Stop and get back in touch with nature and yourself. life is too short.
This may not be the largest or most extravagant water feature I have ever designed and built but it is my favorite. Every aspect of this project revolved around the kids. The parents wanted something the kids would interact with and be able to explore and learn from. they traded T.V and video games for feeding koi fish and catching frogs! we built a beach entrance that sloped all the way into the deep end (2 feet at its deepest) we built two designated feeding stones, and gave each child their own sitting rock. this is what its all about, this is the lifestyle! 11x16 backyard koi pond with 25 foot stream = your kids having a life time of memories and life experiences in their own back yard, gifted to them by you = PRICELESS!For more info visit:iloveponds.com/water-features/koi-pond.html

When you ask people what they think a water feature is they usually respond with "those plastic tubs they sell at home depot" and thats sad because the world of water features is much more grand and beautiful. this is a video release by Aquascape Inc. for its contractors to help spread the word about water features, koi ponds, and waterfalls and help educate the world on the lifestyle they could be living.
You may be asking yourself how do i find the right contractor to build my backyard oasis. Its not an easy task pre-qualifying the right people in todays world when every joe shmoe with a shovel and a law mower say "oh i know how to do that". when it comes to waterfalls and ponds your purchasing more than a hole in the ground. Each and every water feature built is a custom living and breathing piece of art. and it takes a qualified educated artist to do it right. this video explains in better words why i am always preaching to hire a CAC or Certified Aquascape Contractor. Ponds done right, customers served right!
